Pedal power: cycling style ... according to the FT!

Postby Dee Jay » 7 Jul 2008, 11:07am

We're all cutting edge, on-trend and 'channelling' Lance, apparently!

I led the fashion stakes back in the 70's when suddenly pedal pusher became fashion, quite a few of our cycle club were already wearing them ahead of the fashion. :lol:

Not sure whether I'm following, leading or in a parallel world when it comes to fashion (either on the bike or off it) :roll: . When the weather gets a bit warmer I may be seen wearing this kit (or similar)

Whereas I've always been at the forefront of cycling fashion.

What goes around comes around Yorkshireman. My appraoch is that you should just pick a style that you like and stick with it. eventually it'll be in again and you'll be hip'n'trendy.

Take those old light blue and yellow CTC shirts for example. For years they were appallingly out of fashion, now they are retro.
